Serves: 4 person(s)
Yield: 8 x patties

Preparation Time: 10 mins
Cooking Time: 10 mins


    8 3/4 oz tofu
    2 garlic cloves, minced
    1 Tbsp sherry
    1 Tbsp nutritional yeast (not bread yeast)
    1 medium sized onion, diced finely
    1 Tbsp dark soy sauce
    1/4 tsp ground ginger
    1/4 cup sunflower seeds
    1 pinch black pepper
    1/4 cup wholewheat flour


    Remove tofu from its package and stand on a sloping board for a few minutes, allowing any excess liquid to drain away.

    Crumble tofu into a bowl, add garlic and onion, then the remaining ingredients.

    Mix together well, then working with wet hands, divide the mixture into quarters, then eighths. Shape each portion into a 3 to 4-inch patty.

    Heat a non-stick skillet; cook for 5 minutes per side, or until the burgers are golden brown.


    Substitute sherry for a dash of lemon juice.
